About 1,000 people were injured in the Italian city of Turin after a firecracker provoked a stampede on Saturday night, police say.
Thousands of football fans were watching a live relay of Juventus’ Champions League final against Real Madrid in Cardiff when a bang was heard and rumours of an explosion spread.
At least two people, including a seven-year-old child, were seriously hurt.
There have been truly horrendous occurrences of this over the centuries. A crowd of human beings in a panic is a very dangerous thing.
